Nice work. I wish I could afford one of those cards. It'd be the best I could have for a mini ITX build such as mine.

Thanks I got mine "cheap" I got it for £450 or £500 I think including an MSI Z87-G45 motherboard (worth £110) so effectively I got the card for £350 which isnt bad given the RRP of £1000 wink.gif

Does anyone know how hard it is to flip the inlet and outlet ports on a gpu water block as the way it currently is will mean that the EK logo will be upside down in my case. Is it possible to just flip the black acetal section upside down, there are two o rings between it and the block but I don't know how tricky they will be to put back/if this even works upside down, if someone could let me know ASAP it would be appreciated!

Also tempted to switch out the CSQ frosted CPU block for a clean CSQ one, thoughts? Would probably have to change the reservoir as well then though.

So a bit of progress, I managed to rotate the bridge so the EK logo is now the right way up, also started to make the surrounding motherboard tray on which I am tempted to engrave the logos of my sponsors, this will float above the original locking mechanism and is where the retaining blocks for the tubing will be screwed onto. I have also managed to raise the radiators up by 4mm which should allow me enough room to fit the GPU sitting on top of the bottom radiator.

Nope, however the motherboard is mounted to the hinged door so you can easily open up the system to see inside

Got the GPU installed today and the tubes bent for it, took a couple of attempts but all is now in place. Need to make a couple of brackets to hold the card in place, might try 3D printing them.

join the club, coming up for a year now, my aim is to have the system up and running by the end of march and then once I have done that I can focus on sleeving and other little details.
